Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body Read Online Free - Take a funny and illuminating tour of the female body with award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe.
Women have so much going on, what with boobs and jealousy and menstruating and broodiness and sex and infidelity and pubes and wombs and jobs and memories and emotions and the past and the future and themselves and each other.
Here's a book that deals with all of it.
Sara Pascoe has joked about feminity and sexuality on stage and screen but now she has a book to talk about it all for a bit longer. Animal combines autobiography and evolutionary history to create a funny, fascinating insight into the forces that mould and affect modern women.
Animal is entertaining and informative, personal and universal - silly about lots of things and serious about some. It's a laugh-out-loud investigation to help us understand and forgive our animal urges and insecurities.

Fans of How to Be a Woman, gender equality or laughing like a simpleton on public transport: I recommend this book to you. People who only like rigorous, unbiased, robust science… maybe you should sit this one out. I usually occupy the middle section of that venn diagram, but because this book wa...

I'm glad he dies in the end.

The kind of quarterassed evopsych book that makes me cringe. It comes across as though written by a 19-year-old who's just discovered evolution. Virtually every sentence made me want to scream "it's more complicated than that!" If you want to write one of these, here's how you do it:
- Take an ass...

This is a bloody marvellous introduction to the myriad of issues faced by women. It is warm, witty and hugely interesting. I imagine it as a giant jumping off point for girls/ young women/ adults/ boys/ teenagers etc etc etc to read and learn and experience MORE.

Because I am inherently lazy, I never write book reviews. But sometimes you read a book that makes you belly laugh so much you feel compelled to write something that might just convince every single person ever, to read it as well.
Magazines like Cosmo and Heat would probably call Sara Pascoe's b...

I am surprised at myself for reading this book, as I have never particularly liked Sara Pascoe (I don't find her funny), but I'm glad that I did. This is a book I would want my teenage daughter (of the future!) to read, as although I didn't learn anything new from it (I have an interest in behavi...

I was a bit disappointed by this book having seen and enjoyed Sara Pascoe's stand-up live. There were bits of this book that had me laughing until I cried, and other bits that left me feeling frustrated. It's quite a jumble of different things, certain parts read like a self-help book, other bits...

I adore Sara Pascoe, even after she startled me that one time at work. This book was informative, witty, and clever- I just wish there were a few extra edits- mainly changing 'both genders' to 'all genders'. Still, this book was refreshing and delightfully rambly (but interestingly so) and I can...

It's a book that every woman and man should read... hilarious and in many ways a sexual education handbook for the 21st century.

I've seen Sara Pascoe do some fantastic stand-up, so I was really interested to see what this would be like. The rhythm of her delivery is here and works on paper. It's an entertaining mix of autobiographical comedy, feminism and evopsych - a similar experience to Bridget Christie's book, but wit...
